WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said this after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced indictments against Russian intelligence officers related to the 2016 presidential election:

“While Congress was assured by the Obama administration that safeguards were in place to protect our elections from Russian election meddling, any foreign interference in our elections is unacceptable. During my recent trip to Moscow, this issue was raised repeatedly and Russia was warned that any future attempts would further harm our already stressed relationship.”
